Have you ever heard the little moral tale about how it is actual impossible for the bumblebee to fly according to physics, but since no one told the bumblebee that, it goes ahead and does it anyway? It is a cute little story even if it isn't 100% true.
So in the 10 years I have been fostering, I have NEVER had a kitten who rejected wet food and would eat only dry. Kittens innately gravitate towards the higher animal protein in canned food. As you have seen in this blog very recently kittens tend to use dry food as litter and I have to teach them that it is actually food (unless I have a mother cat who eats it, then she teaches them)
Well Donna is the bumblebee of my life. When they were in the weaning stage I would offer all of the kittens wet food, and one by one the light bulb went off over their heads and they LOVED wet food. Not Donna. I figured she was just taking her time weaning.. well in the past few days I've come to realize she has weaned.. just on to dry,
|nom nom nom|
So I've taken up the dry for the night. Donna won't starve, she still nurses off of Minerva. I'm hoping she'll take to wet food, but if not, she'll just be a dry food kitty. I know many kitties do just fine on dry food but I would just like her to have the option of eating canned in case she is one of those kitties, like Jack, who do medically better on canned. But if not, I'll just start calling her Bumble..
